Lynn Bateman Memorial Teaching Award and Fellowship


The parents of Lynn Bateman donated the funds that support these two awards. They did so to honor their daughter, Lynn, who was an excellent teacher for the Department of Mathematics, 1985 - 1988. We remember Lynn for her dedication to the teaching of mathematics and her commitment to our department.​

Lynn Bateman Memorial Teaching Award

For those individuals who demonstrate the intelligence and determination that Lynn brought to her work, this annual $1,000 cash award is given to a graduate student who has excelled in teaching, has contributed to department service, and has gone beyond the basic requirements of a teaching assistantship.

Award Criteria

The Lynn Bateman Teaching Award is based upon the following criteria:

  • Demonstrated excellent teaching ability. Factors used to determine this may include course evaluations, comments from course captains, and classroom observations by faculty members.
  • At least two semesters as a University of Colorado Denver TA, and at least one semester as a CU Denver TA in the preceding calendar year.
  • An overall graduate GPA of at least 3.5.
  • ​The same person cannot receive this award two years in a row.

Lynn Bateman Memorial Fellowship

Established in 1998, this fellowship is awarded to an outstanding graduate teacher assistant to support doctoral research. To be eligible for the award, the applicant must have an overall GPA of at least 3.5 and must have taught at least two semesters as a regular teaching assistant in the department.   The criteria for the fellowship are as follows:

  • High quality teaching.  Factors used to determine this may include course evaluations, comments from course captains, and classroom observations by faculty members.
  • Potential for successful research with strong letters from faculty.
  • Priority is given to students who have passed their comprehensive exam.
  • Priority is given to students who have not received the award previously.

Each year, the department awards a limited number of fellowships to current doctoral students based on scholarship and promise of completing the Ph.D. degree. The duration of the fellowship is one or two semesters. The fellowship provides tuition and at the same stipend as a teaching assistantship, but without any teaching responsibilities. The recipient is expected to make significant progress toward the Ph.D. In general, priority is given to students who have passed their comprehensive exam.
